for NYE this year we will eaither be broke and snuggled at home (i spent last NYE alone since liz got stuck at work like 3 hours late i was literally asleep on the couch waiting for her when it hit midnight)
if things go right and everything, i kinda want to go to one of the indian casinos on the outskirts and be able to look out into the blackness of the desert from a tall building. i dont mean that in some creepy depress-o way, just that i like the odd openness of it and almost never experience it. seems fitting for some reason.
i will rep my part of the shizz by geting boozy and yelling at strangers who dont care about comics and/or powerviolence
im not kidding.
i do it in real life as much as i do it on the internet
same deal, i dont even know who you are but i tried to get one of these going before at that same alley. its kinda cool, def better than the chain stuff but its not exactly a hug margin. if we can get some people i would try to make it!
the biggie as we all know is Penzone. fuck arpaio. the fact that people keep voting for him is actually more upsetting to me than any other political issue in my entire lifetime- not because of how terrible he is, but because it reflects on how terrible all of my neighbors are
Hi everyone. I just moved to PHX and want to know if there are any interesting, challenging local bands I should keep an eye on. I' am always looking for variations of the 90's Chicago/Louisville post-rock genre. I' am also a fan of dream-pop/shoegaze bands like Cocteau Twins, Slowdive, My Bloody Valentine and genre-less bands like Devotchka. I would like to meet other musicians as well and was told "Go to shows and you'll meet people there." I looked at the Arizona reverbnation.com chart for any upcoming shows and became frustrated seeing how many people listed themselves under the independent genre when they are clearly not.
while i agree that chart looks pretty horrible, there really needs to be a second one that compares the money brought IN because of the olympics. both sides have to be considered, like complaining that athletes make 10 million a year while ignoring the fact that the team generates like 500 million in that same span
fun fact: under this law, these companies that are for-profit must report the percentage of their income that is spent on paying out claims, payroll, etc through their tax reporting. if that number doesnt reach 80% of their net, they have to pay it back to the enrollees. i just got a check for the difference of last year! its not a ton of money, but its money. also fun: since i wasnt paying the premiums, yet the check is addressed to me and not the company, its a total bonus
while i agree with most feminist-tilting things,there is an angle to a lot of the recent 'outrages' that ignores one thing: is it so bad that dudes want sex? i mean, isnt that kind of a genetic reason why we are all still around? dont get me wrong, a lot of the shit that people get judgemental about is still pretty stupid to me and DUDE, TITS is dumb...but i mean, male sex drive has always been like this. its starting to seem more and more like the new version of 80s stand up 'eh, my wife hates the sex. am i right?'
the pug (who i know doesnt count in this thread, but shut up, she is the size of the cat and basically counts) loves strawberries, apple slices, carrots and she will lick bananas and watermelon but not chew them. its adorable
